The car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) is the identifying code for a SPECIFIC automobile.
The VIN can be found by looking at the dashboard on the driver’s side of the vehicle. The Free Estimate Game:Would you rather collect 80% of an accurate appraisal or 20% of an inflated one?
Many clients believe that if another appraiser gives them a higher initial estimate, the settlement amount will be equally high. Insurance companies know who the legitimate appraisers are, so don't get caught up in the estimate game. We are car appraisers and NOT a law firm or a substitute for an attorney, a law firm or a CPA.
We cannot provide any kind of advice, explanation, opinion, or recommendation about possible legal rights, taxes, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms or strategies.
Welcome to our somewhat incomplete listing of information about BMW Car Models over the years. The Vehicle Identification Number or VIN found on newer BMWs not only includes the serial number of the car, but tells you a bit about when and where the car was built and with what equipment.
In addition to the information contained in the VIN number your car will most likely have a build sheet that can often be found under the cushion of the back seat. Since 1981, the Vehicle Identification Number is 17 characters and uniquely identifies the type of vehicle, manufacturer and origin.


A Combining info from the VIN and the build sheet (usually found under the back seat) gives you this level of information about your car. The electronic mail addresses listed on this web site are for official BMW Car Club of BC business only, and are not intended for commercial use such as Unsolicited Commercial Email, also known as SPAM or junk email. You can learn a great deal about your Capri from the information on the identification plate under the hood. The sequence actually continues past August, 1977, but no European Capris were produced for the US market after this date.
The sample VIN thus indicates a Capri produced in Genk, Belgium (a Ford of Germany plant) in March, 1977.
The remaining details the identification plate varies somewhat from year to year, but they all contain basically the same information.
The engine code will also be stamped on the somewhere engine block, followed by the date code and 5 digit sequence number from the VIN. The VIN serves as the car’s fingerprint, as no two vehicles in operation have the same VIN.
The easiest way to view it is to stand outside the vehicle on the driver’s side and look at the corner of the dashboard where it meets the windshield. This may not be the most definitive page of BMW stuff on the internet, but we do intend on providing a few informative bits to answer BMW related questions you may have.
This sheet covers some of the same info, plus a listing of factory installed items in your car.


Inappropriate use of the email addresses on this web site will be considered theft of service. Halewood, England normally produced only right hand drive cars for the British market, but there is some anecdotal evidence that a few early Capri 1600s were produced there for the USA.
The factory simply assigns them in order from 01001 to 99999, and then starts over from 01001.
If you run across one with an engine code that is not on this list, it may be a European model that was imported privately. If you have a Capri with these engine codes or if you can provide any other information, please e-mail Larry.
This legal identifier also frequently has a bar code representation under the 17 characters, which makes instant electronic identification possible.
The first letter identifies the country that produced the car (actually the country of the Ford division that controls the production plant, not the actual plant).
Alert readers may have noticed that the example indicates a 2000cc low compression engine in a 1977 Capri, which is invalid for the USA.
